#6580: BP_Messages_Thread::$last_message_* not populated by default

 Priority:  normal               |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  Component - Members  |    Version:  1.6
 Severity:  normal               |   Keywords:
 The `BP_Messages_Thread` class offers some convenience fields that grant
 direct access to the data for the last message in the thread:

 - `last_message_id`
 - `last_message_date`
 - `last_sender_id`
 - `last_message_subject`
 - `last_message_content`

 However, these are only populated by
 `BP_Messages_Thread_Template::__construct()`, and were not documented in
 `BP_Message_Thread` until [5999].

 This caused me confusion when I was trying to use these fields in a
 different context. To keep others from spending time chasing this down, I
 suggest that we do one of the following:

 1. Add a note to the inline docs for each of these fields stating that
 they are only populated when using `BP_Messages_Thread_Template`.
 1. Always populate them inside of the `BP_Message_Thread::populate()`

 I favor the latter.
